when you have no clue about the old one
How many people who do have a clue are still around? And why are they not working on it?

Just how can we keep having a clue, even when people leave or are not available anymore? Is that not what reqirement management, change management and project documentation are for? If these things do not exist (except - just maybe - between someone's ears), then building it new reduces the problem to getting a clue. At least you don't also have to wrestle with all sorts of undocumented surprises as well.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
